Knowledgebase (KB)

Set to ON to enable knowledgebase or to OFF to disable it. Knowledgebase is a categorized collection of answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) and articles.
TIP: A comprehensive, well written and organized knowledgebase is a great self help resource for your customers. Taking time to write and maintain knowledgebase articles can save you a lot of time and drastically reduce the number of support tickets you receive in the future! It also helps your customers solving problems quickly without having to wait for your reply.


This will enable a What You See Is What You Get type editor (a rich-text editor) for the knowledgebase articles rather than a simple text editor.

Suggest KB articles

If set to YES Hesk will match ticket subject and message against knowledgebase articles and recommend customers to read matching articles before submitting a new support ticket.
